Court Lodge Barn is a magnificent conversion of a Grade II listed East Sussex barn offering far-reaching views out towards the South Downs. The barn itself is understood to date from the 1600s with later addition, and was converted around 2004. Externally, the property presents attractive oak weatherboard upper elevations, under a mainly pitched clay tiled roof.
Inside, plenty of period features remain, including beautiful stone and oak floors, while the accommodation is flexible and arranged over two floors. Reception rooms are excellent for entertaining: the vaulted drawing room is of particular note, and features an inglenook fireplace with a wood-burning stove. The kitchen/breakfast room is a welcoming space which has an Aga and a range of fitted units.
Upstairs are a galleried first-floor sitting room and the principal bedroom suite – which has a vaulted bedroom- and further bedroom accommodation includes two en-suite bedrooms, a further double bedroom, a family bathroom and a study/bedroom five.
The games room/sitting room is attached to a neighbour’s outbuilding outside. Also outside are the paved sitting area, a garage, garden store and wood store, while the grounds are principally laid to lawn with an ornamental pond to one side. There are wonderful westerly views from the gardens to the South Downs in the distance. The grounds come to around 0.75 of an acre.
Court Lodge Barn is located within the picturesque hamlet of Warbleton, which has a parish church and a popular public house. The old market town of Heathfield is around four miles; Battle is around 11 miles for further amenities and direct trains to London.
The guide price is £1.25m. For further information please contact Strutt & Parker on 01273 475 411 or visit www.struttandparker.com.
